Doncaster is getting a new bar which aims to offer an “all-inclusive safe space” for the LGBTQIA+ community. The new venue will be in the town centre and is a two-storey venue named The Library – which is a nod to the ‘reading’ element of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
The new bar will we open to all but as reported by the Doncaster Press, Owner Sam Teale-Price said: “We want Doncaster’s LGBTQIA+ community to have somewhere they can call their own.
“There hasn’t been anywhere for people to go since Bar NY and Crystals in the Market Place closed. This will be an all-inclusive safe space for everyone to enjoy and have a good time.”
The new venue will take the place of the former indie rock venue, Vintage Rockbar. There will be a downstairs dancefloor area that has more of a ‘club vibe’. The upstairs will have a more chilled vibe more in keeping with the name with old vintage decor and a pink pool table.
The venue intends to feature new and upcoming drag queens as a part of its entertainment when it opens. There is currently no set opening date for the venue so you will have to keep your eyes open.
